Whoever (as no by-line is included) wrote this story did their best to twist Conservative MP Chis Alexander’s words and also play around with the responses of the Conservative Party:
In an interview airing Saturday on CBC Radio’s The House, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of National Defence Chris Alexander said “no one is denying” the existence of a special discretionary Conservative Party fund controlled by the prime minister’s chief of staff. (see here)
You’ll notice that quotes weren’t put around the line fund controlled by the prime minister’s chief of staff which leads me to assume Alexander didn’t actually say that but the reporter who posted the story wanted people to believe he had.
Curious if Greg Weston was the author?
